    Because Smart was out of the game and Kemba would destroy Kyrie

    Tough to argue it's good when Kemba is going off.

    They just switch him off his man anyways. Need a full team effort to adequately D up. One on one D is not really possible.

    Kyrie or Tatum should be taking all the late shots. Jaylen should be in for either Hayward or Smart.

    GH shouldn't be out there at the end of games. Especially not on a night Jaylen's playing well.

    Ok, he's got the defensive lineup in, and yet, he still has Hayward in over Brown. I don't get it.

    I dont care what anyone says. When Walker is doing this, nobody is going to completely shut him down. It sucks for the Celtics but it is what it is.

    Has Hayward made a shot in this game? If so, I missed it.

    Dude Hayward is the worst player on the court. The better ones should play.

    On the offensive end, Morris comes in for Smart.

    And now Terry is coming in for defense.

    I think Brad forgot about Jaylen. Seriously.

    I bought league pass before the Indiana game to watch this team. This is clearly all my fault.

    The point isn’t to put Brown on Walker, it’s to have him in over Hayward as a guy who can actually switch on guards right now and contribute on offense.

    He's just randomly punishing the young guys at this point haha. Tatum sat the last twenty minutes against the Jazz and was better than Jaylen in that game

    Ok, just to be clear, the way to beat the Celtics is this simple "Whoever Al is guarding sets the screen, and the best player on the other team gets to shoot in Al's face." If they shoot over 50%, we lose.

    That's about it?

    Yeah I mean there's nothing you can do. Can't blitz that screen and try to force another player to beat you. Just can't do it.

    That sequence perfectly summarizes the offense this year. Missed shot-missed shot-missed shot.

    The only guard who matters is Walker. Nobody was stopping him tonight. Dude shot 56% from the field and 54% from deep. He is unconscious. I am not sure Brown would have made a difference at all.

    117 points isn't that much in 2018. It's our terrible offense that lost the game. They were up 98 - 90 and couldn't score.

    Jaylen only playing 19 minutes, after he did everything right, and everything we've been asking him to do for the first half, is just plain unconscionable. It's that simple.

    What the hell is going on? Trade a future pick for another piece, someone to do the little things. We can't seem to do that from anyone not named Marcus.

    I am fine with changing the rotations as you guys point out but Jaylen Brown's PT was not the difference in this game.

    Yeah the Baynes/Tatum/Rozier/Morris/Smart lineup was trash offensively as you might expect and they never recovered.

    Feels like another game where we see maybe 15 minutes of the Celtics team we were expecting and the rest is just a mess.
